First escapeVektor 3DS preview

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Hot on the heels of our first escapeVektor 3DS gameplay video comes our first preview of the game on the Nintendo 3DS.

Stephen Heller from games site MMGN visited the office and we showed him our latest build of the game. We’re still at an early stage of development but there was enough in there to give him a good idea of what we’re going for.
